"Excellent recipe. I had cake flour on hand so I used that, but that was the only change. I did choose to sprinkle the tops with cinnamon sugar mixture, but doing this made them pretty sweet. I used sweetened applesauce and I wonder if I would prefer unsweetened next time or just eliminate the the cinnamon sugar mix on top. I cooked 20 minutes and the muffin came out really tender. I would make again. I did cut the recipe in half because there are only two of us here and I am going to try freezing a few to eat at a later time."

"Delicious!

I made a couple adjustments:
I made half the recipe and 42 mini muffins and I used half the sugar besides. I also used whole wheat flour, omitted the walnuts, and used nutmeg instead of allspice (I didn't have any allspice on hand)"

"These were good and flavorful. Also easy to make. I think next time I will add something for a little more moisture. But overall,the recipe is a keeper"

"I was looking for a new fall desert recipe and came across this one. I made it immediately and my wife and I thought it was very good. I'll be making these again soon (with butter cream frosting)"
